About the editors
Prof. Eugenio Morello An architect by education, Eugenio Morello is Associate Professor in Urban Design at Polimi, Department of Architecture and Urban Studies (Dastu). He is coordinator and research scientist at the Laboratorio di Simulazione Urbana Fausto Curti (since 2010), and the Climate Change Risk and Resilience Lab (since 2020). Since 2017 he is the Rector’s Delegate for environmental sustainability. He is the department principal investigator of the European H2020 projects ‘Clever Cities’ and ‘Sharing Cities’. His research interest is situated in the interplay between urban design and environmental quality, climate design, resilience and adaptation to climate change. He investigates the integration of environmental aspects and energy transition solutions for the design of sustainable neighbourhoods towards the closing of energy and environmental cycles. More recently, his research work has opened new insights on the topic of collaborative consumption and sharing society and how these new paradigms can inform urban planning, urban design and co-creation approaches.
Prof. Davide Geneletti Associate Professor of Spatial Planning at the University of Trento. Specialised in impact assessment of projects, plans and policies; spatial and urban planning; ecosystem services; multicriteria analysis. Formerly Research Fellow at Harvard University’s Sustainability Science Program (2010-11), and Visiting Scholar at Stanford University’s Woods Institute for the Environment (2014). He has consulted for private and public bodies internationally, including the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), UN-HABITAT, and the European Commission. Editor-in-Chief of the Journal of Environmental Assessment Policy and Management and deputy Editor of the open access journal One Ecosystem. He has been Principal Investigator/Work Package leader in over 10 international research projects. PhD from Free University Amsterdam.
Prof. Fabiano Lemes de Oliveira Associate Professor in Urbanism at the Department of Architecture and Urban Studies at Politecnico di Milano. Prof. Lemes joined Politecnico di Milano in 2019 after over 10 years working at the University of Portsmouth in the United Kingdom. His research lies at the intersection of urban and environmental planning, with a focus on the relationships between city and nature, and the roles of green space systems and planning models in city and regional planning. Recent research areas include green urbanism, planning history, nature-based solutions, urban design theory and practice, urban sustainability, planning models aimed at balancing urbanisation with nature – in particular related to the green wedge idea and green infrastructure. He is the author of the book Green Wedge Urbanism: History, Theory and Contemporary Practice, published by Bloomsbury (London/ New York) and co-edited the book Planning Cities with Nature: Theories, Strategies and Methods, published by Springer (Amsterdam).
